    I've written a little script that goes out to my competitors websites and scrapes their prices. I basically loop through my active inventory and lookup those numbers on the other websites. It takes about 15 minutes to run. It gets number, does a web page request, gets page, parses info, writes to file, and loops back.

    How can I make this thing look up like 5 items at the same time?

    I'm on linux and using perl.
